Improve Productivity With Prize Game
Business General Author: Brian Jardine
Improve Productivity With Prize Game
Improving productivity in the workplace can be a daunting challenge. While employees yell, "the quotas are too high", managers know that more work can still be accomplished. Is there a way to improve productivity without making employees feel like slaves?

Providing incentives
can do just the trick. Few employees would turn down a raise, even if that raise only amounts to ten cents an hour. If the budget simply will not allow for pay raises, however, giving those valued workers a chance to play a prize wheel can be almost as effective.

1. Buy a prize wheel.
This can be accomplished in a number of ways but going online will typically get the most value for the dollar. Doing a quick search on Google can help anyone find the right wheel for the job. Remember, the wheel should be customizable so that it can be used again in the future.

2. Create a list of prizes that will appeal to employees. Offering a day off with pay as the grand prize could easily motivate stubborn workers into action. Other prizes could include everyday office items such as travel mugs, company pens, leather bound day planner and, lunch gift cards, printer ink, etc. Also, including a few great cash prizes definitely would not hurt.

3. Lay down the law. Devise a list of rules that go along with spinning of the wheel. What type of good or exceptional behavior will lead to the chance to spin the wheel? Meeting a higher quota? Working through a coffee break? Prohibit anyone from touching the prize wheel without permission and apply consciences for touching the prize wheel. If the prize wheel can not be left on the work floor, consider buying a mini or baby prize wheel. These are smaller wheels that can easily be transported from location to location and stored in a closet or under a desk or on a shelf.

4. Put the prize wheel to work. Hold a meeting and let employees know about the brand new incentive program. A simple demonstration that you have notice the slackness or, that you are not satisfied with the small amount work being accomplished can sometimes be enough to improve productivity on its own. Having a set of procedures and suggested guidelines surrounding the use of the prize wheel can be immensely helpful.

5. Follow through on it. Trust is vital to a good and healthy employer/employee relationship. Be sure to give employees a chance to spin the wheel each time they meet the criteria laid out in step 3. Do not let pressing demands get in the way of backing up a promise. Also, when a prize is won, give it to the winning employee in a timely manner. Also to create a bit of healthy competition, you could continue to give the winner a little extra praise for their good or exceptional behavior, be careful with this, you do not want to pamper them.
